The MACO Museum of Art and Culture of Arcidosso strongly believes that new technologies are an important means for museum education, and the involvement of the youngest, therefore the MACO has included multimedia paths using the latest generation of virtual reality. Visitors can virtually visit Tibetan monasteries, caves, and archaeological sites.
The virtual theater located in the center of the museum was designed by our artistic director Giorgio Barberio Corsetti in order to immerse the viewer inside the landscapes filmed specifically with three cameras in Tibet and China. Within the virtual theater, contemporary Tibetan dances are also projected, where the theater visitor can try to imitate the dancers.
The multimedia map located inside the MACO was created during a workshop with a numerically controlled milling machine, organized by the director Alex Siedlecki, with the aim of involving young people and the local community in the realization of the museum. On the map of Central Asia, educational itineraries are projected such as the various journeys undertaken in Asia by the Italian explorer Giuseppe Tucci
